Five fighters from the least successful U.S. men's boxing team in Olympic history intend to prove they've got futures beyond the games.
Three-time Olympian Rau'shee Warren is among five London Olympic boxers making their pro debuts on Friday at a casino outside Palm Springs, California.
The American men failed to return from London with any medals for the first time in Olympic history. The cachet of their Olympic pedigree still attracted famed manager Al Haymon, who sees professional futures for the group.
The Olympians are all happy they're making their debuts together in a solitary sport, allowing them to feel the team spirit for a bit longer.
